King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.
7 With good will doing service , as to the Lord, and not to men: 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth , the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 8 because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. 9 And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
